Pressestimmen"In these brilliant essays, eminent scholars examine the roots and processes of democracy, authoritarianism, and international relations in Mexico as a means of explaining contemporary events. By illuminating the rich creativity and changing constraints of Mexican politics, they validate the indispensability of historical analysis and cast doubt on the facile paradigms that render Latin American political development derivative, delayed, or deviant."--Mary Kay Vaughan, coeditor of The Eagle and the Virgin: Nation and Cultural Revolution in Mexico, 1920-1940
